We have eaten here about 4 times,. but not recently, so when our friends said the food was better, we decided to give it another try. Well if you like bland food this is for you. My husband ordered chow fun noodle dish. You could literally count how many chow fun noodles there were, it was mostly bean sprouts. The... More

Had dinner here last night after a noisy meeting next door at CB. What a delightful difference! First, the ambiance is tasteful and soothing with soft music in the background, easy to talk over. The wait staff was pleasant, professional and very knowledgeable of the menu making helpful suggestions. I love a restaurant where the wait staff seem to actually... More

We have had Sushi and appetizers twice at "The Taste", and were very pleased both times. The servers were friendly and helpful, the Sushi is as good as any we have ever had, and the prices are affordable

My friend and I always have our sushi dates here. Tonight our server was Elizabeth, who is very attentive and super friendly. I had the steamed chicken dumplings and an eel roll. Very tasty! Great menu with so many choices. I'll definitely come back.

I recently had lunch here alone and felt very comfortable. I ordered a Bento box with shrimp. Everything was very good, but the shrimp was overcooked. I will ask about that on my next visit. The menu is extensive and the sushi is beautifully prepared and delicious. I have eaten here more that 10 times and will return. the atmosphere... More

We had soup with flank steak and didn't like sauces they gave us. Bland. The Yellow chicken curry was pretty good. The noodle bowl was bland if you didn't choose one of their two sauces. The food was all fresh but didn't taste Vietnamese.

This is a great little neighborhood restaurant on the NW side of Gainesville. Small, friendly, huge menu, and great Asian food. I haven't tried all that many things on their menu because I can't get enough of their Cherry Blossom sushi appetizer. Crispy rice topped with spicy tuna and pomegranate balsamic glaze. I have had their pad thai and it's... More

Too expensive for nothing! There was just no flavor. My husband got the Ramen and felt sick the whole night. We won't be going back.
